Review for Five Mountains Hawaii Inc, Kamuela, HI, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

At a time in my life when I needed something constructive to do, I decided to volunteer some time to Five Mountains Hawaii. I was respected for my skills and for my time.
In time, I participated in some of the programs offered by Five Mountains. I was a team leader and organizer of Take It Off Hawaii, I am a certified trainer in the Life Plan, and I have helped organize many meetings and trainings.
I have seen every program Five Mountains Hawaii offers is run in a professional manner with respect for all participants. A lot of the time put into the programs is volunteer and the communities and schools have gotten behind most of the programs of Five Mountains Hawaii. I am proud to be both a volunteer and a program participant of Five Mountains Hawaii.
My only feedback for the organization is that they need to be able to hire organizers for each program while it is running so the programs will be more organized and effective. Right now, all organizing and implementing is left to volunteers and the Five Mountains Director. This makes for an inefficient organization for most programs.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Take it off Hawaii and Life Plan Hawaii.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Ask for donations that would allow the temporary hiring of organizers for the various programs as they are run so that they can be even more successful than they are.

Role:  Volunteer & I participated in and helped organize two of the programs offered by Five Mountains Hawaii.
